Azure API Management update April 19

Posted on Friday, April 19, 2019

On April 19, we started a regular Azure API Management service update. The update includes the following bug fixes, changes, and new features:

  • API Management is now available in South Africa North and South Africa West regions.
  • API Management now refreshes certificates from Azure Key Vault every 4 hours, instead of every 24 hours. 
  • We added a new authenticate-managed-identity policy that supports authenticating with an API back end by using the managed identity of the API Management service.
  • We fixed an issue in Open API Specification v3 import that caused Null Reference Exceptions.

We deploy updates gradually. It usually takes a week or more for every active service instance to receive the updates.
